Nice looking ship. Agroteras Dusia , p. From this hero, or rather from the town of Amnarynthus, Artemis derived the surname Amarynthia or Amarysia, under which she was worshipped there and also in Attica. A surname of Artemis, under which she was worshipped at Syracuse, and according to some accounts the original name of Hecate. In the neighbourhood of the town of Caphyae in Areadia, in a place called Condylea, there was a sacred grove of Artemis Condyleatis. On one occasion when some boys were playing in this grove, they put a string round the goddess' statue, and said in their jokes they would strangle Artemis.
Some of the inhabitants of Caphyae who found the boys thus engaged in their sport, stoned them to death. After this occurrence, all the women of Caphyae had premature births, and all the children were brought dead into the world. This calamity did not cease until the boys were honourably buried, and an annual sacrifice to their manes was instituted in accordance with the command of an oracle of Apollo. The surname of Condyleatis was then changed into Apanchomene. A tradition of that place related that Hippolytus, after being restored to life by Asclepius, came to Italy, ruled over Aricia, and dedicated a grove to Artemis.
This goddess was believed to be the Taurian Artemis, and her statue at Aricia was considered to be the same as the one which Orestes had brought with him from Tauris. According to Strabo, the priest of the Arician Artemis was always a run-away slave, who obtained his office in the following manner: -- The sacred grove of Artemis contained one tree from which it was not allowed to break off a branch; but if a slave succeeded in effecting it, the priest was obliged to fight with him, and if he was conquered and killed, the victorious slave became his successor, and might in his turn be killed by another slave, who then succeeded him.

Here the statue of the goddess stood in the open air, and maidens celebrated a festival to her every year with dances.
Others derived the name from the Attic village of Chitone, or from the circumstance of the clothes in which newly-born children were dressed being sacred to her. Respecting the festival of the Chitonia celebrated to her at Chitone, see Dict. The god with the golden sword or arms. In this sense it is used as a surname or attribute of several divinities, such as Apollo Hom. He was sold as a slave, and carried to Crete, where he served in the temple of Artemis; but he escaped from thence with a priestess of the goddess, who carried her statue to Sparta.
CORDACA Kordaka , a surname of Artemis in Elis, derived from an indecent dance called kordac , which the companions of Pelops are said to have performed in honour of the goddess after a victory which they had won. CRANAEA Kranaia , a surname of Artemis, derived from a temple on a hill near Elateia in Phocis, in which the office of priest was always held by youths below the age of puberty, and for the space of five years by each youth. In the case of Artemis it is uncertain why she bore that surname, and it was perhaps merely an allusion to her statue being made of laurel-wood Paus.
